What People are saying about this

Sandy Weisberger
DURING is the only book I've found that effectively brings support people into the equation of a breast cancer diagnosis. Kevin's feelings and thoughts, introduced along a parallel timeline with those of Jody, helped me to better understand some of my own feelings -- and hopefully made me a better support person when my own wife was given this devastating diagnosis.

This book appeals to everybody who loves reading! What an intimate look at medical misdirection and the power of personal advocacy! But most poignant is the family story. How do you tell your kids you may not be there for them tomorrow? What do you think about forced celibacy or radical changes in behavior when exhibited by your spouse? DURING is more than a "cancer book." It is a love story that speaks loudly to each listener on the importance of family, faith, friends, and hope.

Jody and Kevin Patrick's words paint a vivid picture of what it is like for families who are going through the cancer experience. DURING is impossible to put down once you get started!

A totally unique approach to cancer journaling! DURING is more than a powerful book -- it should be required reading for the entire medical community, and certainly it is a "must read" for anyone who loves a woman diagnosed with breast cancer. I am thrilled that such a compelling story has finally been told. Two thumbs up for this rare, life-altering book!

Jody and Kevin Patrick's book will grip you from the first page and keep that hold on you until the end of this touching book. You need not be a cancer patient or survivor to appreciate this frank, insiders look at this dreadful disease and its treatment. The book is made up of Jody's and Kevin's journal entries, which are written with passion and brutal honesty. This is not just a story of a couple coping with cancer treatment, it is so much more. It is a newlywed's journey through the first few years together, a new step-parents struggles with a teenager, a daughter grieving for her sick mother, and so much more. As Jody goes through her treatments for Breast cancer, she gives us an insiders look at what happens to your body, mind and spirit. Kevin's view was that of the husband who suffered in silence along with his wife, unable to erase her pain, but doing all that he could to ease it.
